Barbara Ann Dexter Gupton, age 79, of Jefferson went to be with the Lord on February 1, 2019. Mrs. Gupton was born June 30, 1939 in Pearl River, NY to the late Russell and Mary Rassaert Dexter. She is proceeded in death by her parents, her husband James Cabot Gupton and her son Russell Gupton.
Bobbie graduated from Oglethorpe University. Together with her husband, she lived in various places in the United States and abroad, through their work with the Boy Scouts of American. She was a avid Scouter. She always considered Raleigh, NC her home. She was a teacher, realtor and dog lover. She taught swimming and took great pleasure in her grandkids. She never met a stranger. She was adventurous, always exited to move and explore new places. She had an unending sense of humor, even to the end of this life.
In 2011, she underwent brain surgery to remove a tumor. For the last eight years she fought the good fight, was optimistic, bold in adversity and never gave up. She was the inspiration. She was a loving mother and grandmother, sister, friend. She will be greatly missed.
A small tribute will be held at 10:00 AM, Saturday, February 9, 2019 at her home in Jefferson Landing at, 495 W. Landing Dr., Apt. A 1.
